The cemetery at Cemetery Junction

Reading Old Cemetery, also called the cemetery at Cemetery Junction due to its location, is interesting and large, with rambling passages, timeworn tombs and monuments, and a smattering of deer and cats to keep watch on the departed. And yes, the Cemetery Junction in question is the one for which Ricky Gervais named a film.

Here are some pictures from my visit there in May.

This is the tomb of 21-year-old pilot Bernard Laurence who died
in a motorcycle and sidecar race after creating two world records.
